    That sounds like a LOT of hard work.


    But here's one of my favorite quotes
    "If it were easy, everyone would do it! It's the hard that makes it great"

    Quote:LOL You will quickly fall in love with those pigs. I know more families and retired folks that adore raising and showing them then kids actually! Our favorite show judge is in his 70's and enjoys them more than his wife. Good luck! If you have any questions from someone who has raised them for several years let me know!!! [​IMG]
